Workshop info in English

XXVIII edition of the International Animated Film Workshop will be held from 13th to 22th September. The practical part of the workshop will take place in the picturesque village of Lanckorona (approx. 25 km from Krakow).

During International Animated Film Workshop in Krakow/Lanckorona animators will work on concepts for their films and implement them under the guidance of Polish and foreign film experts. The workshops are directed mainly to artists and students preparing to start their careers. During the Workshop they will be working on their debut films, producing film excerpts and developing their professional skills and knowledge of the latest film technologies. The workshop is also intended for artists dealing with other mediums: painting, sculpture, graphics, etc. The workshops support the artistic and professional development and establish friendly environment for preparation and implementation of projects as well as initiate production and distribution. Many videos initiated at the Workshop are presented and awarded at different international film festivals.

Due to the current situation of the pandemic, the conditions for creative work, film production and education have significantly deteriorated. This extreme situation causes us to mobilize. It obligates us to organize the next edition of the International Animated Film Workshop. This workshop will allow us to support artists’ creative work at the start of their professional lives. While helping them to prepare and produce their next films and accomplish their skills.

Taking into account the current sanitary restrictions we are still considering moving part of the workshop to the virtual space in the form of online consultations and part of it in the form of real life meetings in Lanckorona. For safety reasons the film shows and lectures will be available for the Workshop participants only. However, the materials will be widely accessible online.

Since the very beginning workshops are conducted by Jerzy Kucia – animation filmmaker, winner of numerous international awards and author of many initiatives in this field. There already have been 27 editions of the Workshop, which was attended by participants from over one hundred countries.
